Traditional sensor network and robot navigation are based on the map of detecting fields available in advance. The optimal algorithms are explored to solve the energy saving, shortest path problems, etc. However, in practical environment, there are many fields, whose map is difficult to get, and need to detect. This paper explores a kind of ad-hoc navigation algorithm based on the hybrid sensor network without the prior map. The system of navigation is composed of static nodes and mobile nodes. The static nodes monitor events occurring and broadcast. In the system, a kind of cluster broadcast method is adopted to determine the robot localization. The mobile nodes detect the adversary or dangerous fields and broadcast warning message. Robot gets the message and follows ad-hoc routine to arrive the events occurring place. In the whole process, energy saving has taken into account. The algorithms of nodes and robot are given in this paper. The simulate and practical results are available as well.
